Notes: Cards feature color artwork on fronts and descriptive text on backs. They are marked "First Series of 36 Wild Man Picture Cards" then "Second Series of 36 Wild Man Picture Cards but are generally considered a single set - the first two parts of a series that was originally planned to span at least five series.American Card Catalog reference is R701-18. Scans are posted at the Vintage Non-Sports Cards gallery. The cards can be downbeat because they focus on mankind's violence: "MAN'S PAST is stained with BLOOD; His FUTURE can be bright with PROMISE - If in the PRESENT he will wage PEACE."
